My todays recipe is “Healthy Fish Gravy In Pressure Cooker”. It is a traditional Bengali recipe, very simple and delicious. In this recipe I have used Katla fish. You can use any type of sweet water fish, but the fish should be fresh. You can prepare this healthy dish in frying pan also.
Cooking time – 12 minutes. Serve – 4

- Onion (large) – 1 (chopped)
- Tomato (large) –1 (chopped)
- Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp.
- Slit green chilly – 4.
- Salt to taste.
- Mustard oil – 6 tbsp.
Wash the fish, marinate with 1/2 tsp.of salt and a pinch of turmeric powder. Heat 4 tbsp.of oil in a frying pan. When it is hot reduce the heat, add the fish pieces. Fry them till light brown on both sides (on medium heat). Take out the fried fish from the oil ,keep aside.
In a pressure cooker add onion,tomato,turmeric,slit green chilly,salt, 2 tbsp.of fresh mustard oil and 2 cups of water. Mix all the ingredients very well. At last add the fried fish pieces. Mix slowly. Close the cooker, place it on medium heat and cook for 4 to 5 minutes (up to one whistle). Remove the pressure cooker from the heat, allow to cool naturally.
